Jamieson wins 2nd World Championship
« Return to News
For his efforts, Jamieson won the Ulf Thoresen Trophy, a check for $25,000, and the right to defend his title when the next World Driving Championship is contested in France in 2013.
One of the lows he experienced came in Friday’s first race: He began the night 18 points ahead of the USA’s Corey Callahan and only six in front of Spain’s Juan Antonio Riera-Rossello. Jamieson’s mount made a break as soon as the field left and he could only watch as Callahan scored a key victory that tightened the competition when Jamieson scored only a single point for a 10th-place finish.
While Callahan’s fans cheered, it took the Canadian little time to regain his winning ways: He scored victories in the next two races to put things statistically out of reach.
When Bjorn Goop of Sweden won the fourth and final division, Callahan’s second-place finish vaulted him over the Spaniard and into second position overall. Callahan edged Jamieson and Goop for honors in the fifth and final round.
